Native Plant Education Garden

River City Wild Ones wants to show the community that “going native” is not only environmentally sound, but beautiful too!  Visit our Native Plant Education Garden (NPEG) right in the heart of the vibrant East Hills section of Grand Rapids.

The garden is located in front of the historic Inner City Christian Federation Building at 920 Cherry St SE, Grand Rapids, MI  49506. RCWO Volunteers are replacing non-native species with Michigan pollinator-friendly plants. The results have the entire neighborhood “abuzz”. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us or visit the Volunteer Calendar Page to find upcoming volunteer workdays.

Here is a list of the 63 native species you will see when you visit!
